Honestly? I have no clue what my topic is for this challenge. I am hoping it will be inspiring, but in reality it is going to be a journal/diary of my days and of what is going on in life. Nothing fancy here, just me in the raw-only every day for 31 days!
Today is day 1 of the challenge and I was planning to post some photos of fall. Maybe I will insert some of the blood moon that we had this past week.
I have had a few unexpected things happen already this fall and fall has only begun. First, we have mice in the house. I am apparently allergic to mice. I know right!? Like seriously, who knows that they have mice before they see them because they start breaking out and their eyes are burning other than me? Okay, my brother, he has the same reaction. Are we weird? I am thinking yes!
On the 24th of September my great uncle Fred passed away. He wasn’t THAT old at only 78, the memorial service was on Monday and was really intimate and sweet. Though, it was hard on me as my grandpa, his brother, passed away two years ago on September 26th. It was definitely a déjà vu moment to be sitting at a funeral in the same weather on the same dates only two years apart. My heart was broken again, and it broke a little extra knowing what my uncles children and grandchildren were feeling. Praise the Lord that his grandchildren and his children were able to all make it in as everyone lives in a different part of the country.
One thing that sucks though? Having family reunions only when someone dies. I think we need to purpose to get together more often, you know, before a funeral calls us all home. It is hard with such a large family, but we are all getting older and the funerals are coming closer together. Funerals, shouldn’t be normal either, yet they are, at least for me.
I pray that your love will overflow more and more, and that you will keep on growing in knowledge and understanding. For I want you to understand what really matters, so that you may live pure and blameless lives until the day of Christ’s return.
OOOH I am excited about the (In)courage book selection for the book club coming up!! It is Simply Tuesday by Emily P. Freeman. She rocks, the book rocks and I actually have a copy because I was part of the launch team! Normally, I can’t afford to buy a book and join in on the fun so this is extra exciting for me to get to do. I believe I have only been able to participate in one study with (in)courage before and one with P31 Ministry’s!
